Three feared dead after boats collide off Sussex coast

Two men are still missing, presumed dead, after a fishing boat sank off the coast of Sussex.

A huge search was launched after one man was found clinging to a buoy two miles west of Shoreham in the early hours of yesterday morning.

It's thought the boat with four men aboard left Shoreham Harbour around midnight. The body of one man has been recovered.

Investigators are tonight looking into reports the boat may have been hit by a larger vessel before sinking, as Malcolm Shaw reports.
